Hi Gang,

      Last week's KL Roundtable saw plenty of QRPeanut whistlers,
including N2TNN in New Jersey (90mW), WJ4P in South Carolina (100mW),
KE4KDT in Kentucky (20mW), and WO3B in Maryland (150 mW).
Congratulations to Dean, Randy, Roy, and Bob for checking into the net
with such low power. Your mW certificates are on the way. Word has it
that WJ4P is going to try checking in with 10mW next session. N3GO was
trying to QNI with about 20 femtowatts, but nobody heard Gary. Sorry,

      We also had a bodacious turnout from the East Coast and beyond.
Here are some soapbox comments: Can't find my DSP cable (WJ4P),
Added some more counterpoise to my antenna (WB0CLD), Now running a
horizontal antenna up 20' (VE3SP), I copy KE4KDT (20mW) RST 229 (K3TKS),
I copy him RST 119 (AD4ZE). Snow almost brought my long wire down

      Congratulations to old friends with new calls, including
Zack W1VT (ex-KH6CP), Paul W8KC (ex-WB8ZJL), Chas W3KC (ex-W8KUX), and
Malcolm N7GS (ex-AA7WT). Nice calls, guys.....If present conditions
persist, maybe we'll be hearing from some more QRP'ers from out West.

      The Knightlites meet each Sunday night, beginning at 0230Z
(9:30PM EST) on 3710 KHz. We invite newcomers to stop by and say hello.
It's a good way to get to know your QRP neighbors. Check in with 100W,
10W, or 10 uW-- whatever it takes to get through.
